NetEnt’s The Wolf’s Bane Slot Review

The Wolf’s Bane is a 5 reel, 3 row, 10 payline slot from Net Entertainment which has a werewolf theme. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from as little as 10p per spin (up to £100 a spin), this superbly designed game comes with a Pick and Click feature where you simply win cash prizes. There’s also a Free Spins feature where you’ll get up to 60 free spins with regular, spreading, expanding or 2x multiplier wilds.

The Wolf’s Bane Theme/Symbols

Visually, I must say that The Wolf’s Bane is 1 of the best-looking slots we’ve ever come across – set in a medieval village which has been ravaged by werewolves, this dark and sinister looking title has a full moon in the background. With A, K, Q and 9 card suits which are covered in blood, you’ll also see nurses, clairvoyants, gravediggers and soldiers on the reels.

The soldier is the most rewarding symbol with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 2.5, 8 or 50 times your total stake. There’s also a man who transforming into a werewolf – he’s the wild symbol and replaces all the usual symbols (all bar the scatter essentially). Additionally, the soundtrack is equally impressive and will give you chills.

Pick and Click feature

The Wolf’s Bane comes with a Pick and Click feature – this is played when you get the crossbow-wielding man symbol appears simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5. You then choose from 1 of the triggering scatters to give you a cash bonus from as little as 5 times your stake to as much as 50 times your stake.

Free Spins feature

More importantly, The Wolf’s Bane benefits from a Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 3 or more werewolf/full moon scatters. 3, 4 or 5 of them will reward you with 10, 20 or 30 free spins. You will then come across regular wilds, expanding wilds, 2x multiplier wilds and spreading wilds. 1 of the wilds will be randomly chosen to appear in the feature via the Wild Selector Wheel.

4 different wilds

Furthermore, an overlay wild symbol will show up, at random, on reels 1, 2 or 3 on each free spin. Regular the 4 different wilds you can see, this is what they will offer you:

  • Regular wild – acts as the standard wild replacing all symbols bar the scatter
  • Expanding wild – the wild will expand to take over the whole reel to give a wild reel
  • 2x Multiplier wild – the wild will double your win when part of a winning combination
  • Spreading wild – the wild spreads across 3 rows on the same rows for a guaranteed payout

These will either remain (regular wild), expand to take over the whole reel (expanding wilds), double any win it’s part of (2x multiplier wilds) or spread to adjacent positions (spreading wilds). All other wilds appearing will also perform 1 of the 4 functions described above. Finally, you can retrigger the feature to give you up to 60 free spins.

1,000 x stake wins

The Wolf’s Bane is quite a basic slot by NetEnt’s standards – however, the simplicity is a good thing. Medium variance, the most you can win on each spin or free spin is 500 times your stake. With the 2x multiplier wild, the max payout per free spin can be 1,000 times your stake.

Let’s just hope you get plenty of free spins. Overall, it’s a decent slot from NetEnt – if you like the werewolf theme, Blood Suckers II (also by NetEnt) is a better game and offers bigger potential wins (up to 1,298 times your stake from every free spin).
